In T-minus 4 days, it will finally be October. It may be time to start getting started on that Halloween itinerary. To help you out, here’s some exciting attractions taking place in the Lower Mainland this October.
Ah, Playland. A classic. Starting next week (October 4th to be specific), Fright Nights at Playland will commence. Starting at 7pm, guests enter the park and are granted admission to about 20 different rides (wooden coaster included, of course) and 8 different haunted houses. Not only that, you can still enjoy mini donuts and the classic Triple-O’s milkshake as you get chased around the park by their certified Freaks. Tickets for regular admission and rapid pass can be purchased over at Ticketleader!
Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tours
If you want a more…educational Halloween activity, the Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tours may be just up your alley. Running for 2 hours and 30 minutes, you’ll listen to your guide tell you stories of murder and betrayal, ghosts and ghouls and you’ll get to see a different, much less alive side of the city. If you aren’t super into jump scares and want a more traditional horror experience, you can pick up tickets here!
Maan Farms Haunted Corn Maze & Pitch Black
For those looking to get out of the city for a bit, Maan Farms of Abbotsford has got you covered. They’ll be back with their classic corn maze, a terrifying maze of jump scares and horrifying gore, and their newest attraction, Pitch Black, which is not for the faint of heart. Described as a multi-sensory experience, guests have the option to choose whether they want the true interactive experience where, spoiler alert, the no touching rule does not exist. Early bird and regular tickets for both are available now and can be found here.
Potter’s House of Horrors
Located in Surrey, this 15,000 square foot (!!!) live theatre event may just be the thing to cure your hiccups. Potter’s House of Horrors offers older patrons two ginormous haunted houses filled with actors, animations, and atmospheric sounds to explore. If you don’t want to go all out with the spooks, you can visit their family hour before 7 which offers a more mild version of the houses. That’s not all though, you can also test your logic at The Escape from Incineration escape room or feel what it’s like to be buried alive in the coffin ride (claustrophobics beware). Tickets for everything taking place at Potter’s can be found here.
